It is an extraordinary privilege to read this account of Oscar Romero because it reveals his deep inner spirit. To know him in this way becomes a call to find the face of God in the poor, as he did, and to live the way of the gospel love, whatever the cost. --Bishop Thomas J. Gumbleton
With martyrs like this, there is hope for humanity. It is that, so beautifully, that this book shows us. --Jon Sobrino, S.J.
Originally published on the twentieth anniversary of his death, this volume celebrates the life, spirit and legacy of Oscar Romero, the martyred archbishop of San Salvador.
